Thank You
Good Morning Sweet family,

Thanks to Kim Vail for updating my blog regarding my dad's triumphant release from this temporary world and into his glorious arrival into paradise with our sweet Jesus.

The funeral, burial and celebratory meal begins
this afternoon at 2:00.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your prayers.
They are sustaining each of us and your love for us is a powerful witness to my family and this community.
What a joy to serve side by side with each of you as we serve our risen Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Sweet Zoe,

I am hugging you in my heart. As you celebrate the life of your father today and release him from his human shell, I pray that others may come to know the Lord. The angels are rejoicing at his arrival and he will always be with you. Isn't is great that we know we will see our loved ones again.
I am thinking about you and praying for you and your family today.
God Bless and lots of Cyber Hugs,
Diane

Hey sweet friend,

I am praying for you today as you lay your Daddy's body to rest while
holding on to the promise that that you can let go with hope, and celebrate His new life with Jesus. I am praying for your precious mom who must be absolutely exhausted. I am praying for wisdom and grace to fill you; for Mercy to surround you, and for Tenderness to hold you in such a powerful way that you will actually feel God's presence, hear His whisper, and smell the
sweet perfume of His love.

I love you friend.

Renee

Zoe,
No matter how much we are prepared the loss of a parent has to be hard. Of course I didn't know your dad but I know that I am really impressed with the daughter he raised! I will be praying for you and all of your family as you work through the pain and grief of your loss.

Thinking of you,
Kelley

Hi Zoe,

Just wanted to let you know how much I've enjoyed your session at She Speaks. I wanted to write you a little e-book, but I figure if you really want to know you can ask Wendy to email it to you. I've just had a heart-felt experience. Thank you for sharing your heart with us. God bless.

Zoe - I am sorry for your loss. While we rejoice that human suffering is done and eternal life begun, it still hurts to lose a loved one. I think of the song "I've never been more homesick than now." I hope you will be encouraged by friends and loved ones during this time.

Zoe, I have been a reader of your blog for a few months...via Proverbs 31 and in June moved from Tempe, AZ to Matthews. This a.m. we visited CCC for the second time and read in the bulletin about your father passing away and realized that you must attend there also. We love the church and wanted to let you know that we are in prayer for you and your family during this time.

Zoe,

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss, but I admire your positive spirit. I just lost my brother in February, and even though I know he's free of his earthly burdens, I still miss the big ol' lug.

Here is my prayer for you:

Lord, I thank you for the way you have use Zoe in my life through her devotions and her lively presence at the She Speaks conference. As she deals with the loss of her precious daddy, I pray that she will feel your Daddy Love more than ever before. May she find comfort that he Heavenly Father and her earthly father are enjoying sweet communion face-to-face. Bless Zoe and her family in the exact manner they need to be blessed. In Jesus' Name I pray, AMEN

Blessings to your from a fellow "band practice mom", Lee

Hi Zoe,
I was in the writer's track at She Speaks, but Rachel Olson told me part of one of your sessions that I'll be ordering via CD. I am so sorry to hear of your Dad. So hard.
Seems like all of you P31 women are experiencing something right now.
I will be lifting you up to God and pray that He brings you the comfort that only He can.
Blessings,
Lelia
